In this article, people with such as amputees, the autistic, the overweight, etc. can use games to help alleviate the pains of their disabilities. I had seen it coming, as Im sure many have, with games like DDR. I posted this article because of the clip from "Contact" we saw today. About whether or not technology has actually made humanity happier. I really doubted that it has. Most technology is for the military and war. However, if an amputee were to be able to operate a prosthetic arm better with technology, I don't see how that would not make humanity better. This article gave me some hope.
However, there are still personal doubts. I am not one to judge, but I feel if people want to overcome their overweightness, actual excercise rather than video games should be more ideal. However, I also overlook the fact that many may have reasons not to go outside and exercise. All in all, technology is evil and technology is good.
